have had TDE installed on sid for a long time now aslong as you add the 
required repos from squeeze you wont have problems and it wont affect 
the stability of your system by haveing older debian repos in your list 
(it always favours your default (or most up to date depending on 
settings) repo unless a specific version is needed)
